While the focus is always on you, you may be curious about us. (We know we would be if we were searching for somebody to help us through vulnerable times.) The two of us have come together in practice with the common goal of helping people live happier, more peaceful lives. We met years ago while performing mental health therapy in the community and discovered more and more that we had much in common pertaining to how we would like to contribute to this community and the wonderful, eclectic people of which it is comprised. We found that we resonated with each other’s ideas of the therapeutic process and approach. Over the years we have come to be great friends and colleagues. Not only do we share a mental health therapy practice, but we can often be found sharing pizza or nachos over a game or movie.
Halee is a person of great compassion and empathy with a non-judgmental attitude toward people working out their own life journey. She has over 13 years of experience utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Reality Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Mindfulness, all within a Person Centered Approach, working with adults who experience depression, anxiety/panic, relationship problems, sleeping difficulties, and life adjustment issues. In addition to this she has specialized in the area of overwhelming emotions utilizing dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) for individuals finding it difficult to cope and who might be engaging in overt or covert self destructive behaviors. Childhood abuses, trauma and self esteem enhancement are also part of Halee's specialities as well as bereavement issues.
It is natural to experience pain as well as joy during life. It is not, however, natural to remain in a state of suffering. I believe we are meant to live happy, joyful lives within a background of inner peace. Sometimes life's circumstances throw us off balance and professional help is needed to find our way back. That's what I do, that's my purpose, to help others regain, or possibly even discover for the first time that life is not to be feared or dreaded because of hurtful emotions. Sometimes we get confused or stuck, but help is here. There is no reason to suffer or wait to reach out.
